Overview

Mary Cummings Park is a 216 acre public park located in both Burlington and Woburn, Massachusetts. The former farm and estate belonged to Mary P.C. Cummings, who left the land to the City of Boston along with a fund for maintenance, to ensure her vision for the park was lasting as ‘forever open as a public pleasure ground.’ The property contains a variety of natural habitats including wetlands, vernal pools, forest, fields and thickets.
